Sometimes we have to think in smaller terms...

Last year (yeah, last year!) I decided to start a "Glorified Nine Patch" quilt (aka "Robbing Peter To Pay Paul" ). Well, I didn't get too far before I decided that curved piecing was just not my thing. So the blocks got shoved in a box and placed on a high shelf so I wouldn't have to think about them anymore.

I saw that box yesterday and had an epiphany - why not take the blocks that I had made so far and turn them into a table topper and call it done? So I did. My grandiose ideas of a large quilt in this pattern have shrank down to the table topper you see before you now. Better a tiny done UFO than an unfinished UFO, right?

It measures 30" x 30". Now I just got to find a table to top it with.


  1. WOW! You should be so proud! And for sure you are right a finished small project is better then a big ufo. Just in case you can't find a table for it, let me know, there is a table here in Brazil that will love to be decorated with it :)

  2. There's also a table in Georgia at my house that would love that topper! It's a "happy" project -- makes me feel happy when I see it. Your work is beautiful.
